FACTS OF INTEREST: Dragons are important symbols in China and Southeast Asia where they are thought to bring good luck and prosperity. The Chinese dragons of old were ferocious, bearded creatures that could be as small as a silk worm or as large as the expanse of the heavens. Dragons are always part of a Chinese New Year parade. They are meant to scare away evil spirits in the new year. People set off firecrackers at New Year celebrations to wake the rain dragons from their winter sleep to bring spring storms.
